NCL Donates to Local Non-Profits
Since 1974, Napa County Landmarks has advocated for the preservation and appreciation of historic buildings and districts throughout Napa County. Our staff and Board of Directors are devoted to promoting these goals through our educational programs, advocacy, and technical assistance to property owners and local agencies. NCL is fortunate to enjoy a strong financial outlook as a nonprofit organization. Watching our fellow citizens struggle through the pandemic, fires, and economic disruption that have characterized this year led our Board of Directors to think differently about how we can give back to the community that has made us strong. While historic preservation continues to be our primary mission, we have decided to contribute to local organizations focused on meeting people’s immediate needs during these difficult times. NCL has donated $2500 each to four local nonprofits chosen for their longevity and success in providing help to Napa County residents. Napa Emergency Women’s Services provides emergency housing and household establishment assistance to victims of domestic violence. VOICES uses a variety of programs to assist youth transitioning from the foster care system to independent adulthood. Mentis offers bilingual professional mental health services to local residents at every income level. And Community Action of Napa Valley provides food and shelter for those who are in need.
NCL’s Board of Directors hopes that this $10,000 will allow struggling local residents to survive this challenging year and thrive in the future. We know our mission cannot be fulfilled without a strong and healthy local population, and with these donations we are signaling our commitment to the well–being of our community.
